Sleep apnea consequences - A fatal disease

The consequences of sleep apnea can be far-reaching - especially if the condition remains undetected and untreated for a long time. The many small breathing stops during the night lead to a reduced oxygen supply during the sleep phase. As an alarm response to this, the body makes attempts to wake up.

Even though those affected often do not consciously wake up, their night is not very restful. They suffer from a chronic sleep deficit and daytime fatigue, as well as many other secondary symptoms and diseases.

Detect the disease in time and have it treated

Do you snore heavily? Are you also often tired and fatigued the next day despite supposedly sufficient sleep? Do you wake up with headaches, dizziness or a dry mouth? All these symptoms can be the result of undetected sleep apnea. So take the test here and find out for sure.

Once diagnosed and treated appropriately, sleep apnea and its consequences can be permanently stopped.

Sleep apnea can quickly become really dangerous if left untreated

Many sufferers go through the day tired and unfocused, but do not know the trigger for their complaints. Because even if they are jolted out of sleep several times during the night by respiratory arrests, this usually completely escapes their own awareness.

This is what makes sleep apnea so dangerous: it progresses imperceptibly. Those affected are forgetful, bad-tempered, inattentive and react with delay. This also increases the risk of accidents in everyday life and on the road.

But the consequences of sleep apnea go even further: the persistent undersupply of sleep and oxygen increases the risk of secondary diseases with considerable physical and mental stress.

About half of people with obstructive sleep apnea are severely depressed and have anxiety disorders. They also frequently suffer from high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases. As a result, the risk of heart attack increases threefold and the risk of stroke fourfold.

The 6 most dangerous consequences of untreated sleep apnea:

The consequences and risks resulting from untreated sleep apnea can quickly become life-threatening. For this reason, it is important to detect the condition early and have it treated.

The only way to cure sleep apnea and save you from its dangerous consequences is causal therapy. The innovative jaw surgery does not merely relieve the discomfort, but eliminates the airway narrowing and thus the causes of obstructive sleep apnea.

Not having sleep apnea treated shortens life expectancy

If you suspect sleep apnea, you should see your family doctor as soon as possible and be referred to a specialist. This is because untreated sleep apnea can have consequences that lead to chronic diseases, some of which can be fatal.

Permanent sleep and oxygen deprivation damages the entire body, causes it to age prematurely and reduces life expectancy by up to ten years. Mortality in patients with sleep apnea syndrome is four times higher than in healthy people of the same age.
